Stitchable I-Phone Cases

I've been searching for these Stitchable I-Phone Cases for a year now in the US, and thanks to a wonderful shop owner we are now distributing  them!

For those shop owners that are attending the TNNA Nashville Market - you will get first dibs on them.  After the show we will be ordering more, so don't worry if you can't make it to the show.  

You can either cross-stitch, needlepoint or bead them!  The count is equivalent to a 14ct.

The product is currently available for the IPhone 4/4S models, and hopes for the IPhone 5 model to come out in the next few months.  These cases are available in the following colors - BLACK, HOT PINK, LIGHT BLUE (pictured above), RED, and WHITE.  

There are two booklets coming in as well with design ideas for the cases!

The cases retail for $10 and the booklets for $4.   

I have lots of Nashville News to share, but that will come out slowly over the next two weeks, so be sure to check back often!

The shop of your choosing must be a current Norden Crafts customer to be picked.  If you pick a shop that isn't, we will simply ask you to pick another store.  Thank you and Good Luck!


I thought it would be fun to share some random Hearts with you for Valentine's Day!  As I was going through the lists, it kept getting longer and longer..... so don't be surprised if I do another one of these.

Busy week here at Norden!

BLUE JEANS AND DAISIES has left the building!  All of the shipments have left Norden Crafts, and are either on their way to your LNS or website, or they might have already received them!  Thank you all so much for signing up for this Mystery Club!  With the temperatures being sooooo cold here in Chicago, we are all excited to be thinking SPRING.  If you haven't signed up yet, there is still time!  We have charts, thread packs, and 30ct Blue Jeans from Weeks Dye Works ready to ship!


We are busily shipping out all of the Little House Needleworks - Little Sheep Virtues - Hope right now!  It has been a super busy week here at Norden! 


The 3rd installment in the Santa's Village from Country Cottage Needleworks is also shipping out this week!  The NORTH POLE POST OFFICE is my favorite so far!  I love the letters hanging on the line!  Too cute! 


I have to apologize for not getting a post done sooner.  My computer and I have not been getting along, and I have had major computer issues over the last month!  Now that my computer is behaving, I promise it'll be better from now on. 

Happy Stitching,

Katy Fong

Santa Claus is Coming To Town

We focused on family this weekend, and I spent as much time as possible hugging, and kissing my babies.  My daughter Hannah is 9 years old, and my son Logan is 5 years old. 

The man in the middle is someone very special to me!  Yes, my Dad (Dave Stott - the owner of Norden Crafts) is Santa's Helper!  He makes a couple appearances throughout the Christmas Season, and yesterday he made an appearance at my husbands frozen yogurt store.  So of course, we took our kiddos there to visit him. 

All morning I had to keep telling them "Now when you see Papa, what do you call him?"  They would reply with "Santa" (in a of course Mom type of voice)......and then who slipped and called him Dad twice....yep this girl.  Oops!  Both of my kids were right on point in telling me I did exactly what I told them not to do.  I learned my lesson, that's for sure!

Happy Holidays to all, and give your loved ones extra hugs and kisses this season.

Announcing a NEW SERIES from Little House Needleworks!

Little House Needleworks Presents "LITTLE SHEEP VIRTUES".....a delightful 12 part series!!  Join in on the fun today with Norden Crafts!

We are so excited to announce that Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks has announced her NEW MONTHLY SERIES of Little Sheep Virtues. 

The designs are stitched on alternating two fabrics, from R&R 30ct Dark Chino, and Weeks Dye Works 30ct Cocoa. All of the designs measure the same size with a stitch count of 61w x 61h. That will equate to about a 4" square if stitched on the 30ct linen. There will be directions on the chart if stitchers would like to stitch them all together, but Diane will be showing them as individual designs.

*The 30ct R&R Dark Chino will be used in January, March, May, July, September, and November.
*The 30ct Weeks Dye Works Cocoa will be used in February, April, June, August, October, and December.

Another wonderful part about this series is that each design will have an optional button(s) from JABCO which will be shown in the chart photo. Using the button though is completely optional, and so it is not included with the pattern. If you like the button you can purchase it to add on, and if not, then just stitch the chart as directed without the button.

We just know that you will all fall in love with this new series!  We will begin shipping this auto around the 21st of each month to our customers, so be sure to sign up quickly with your LNS, or favorite stitch site!

SHOP OWNERS - Sign Ups are due to Norden Crafts by January 10th, in order to ensure that we have sufficient supplies on hand for the club. Please keep in mind that we have a limited amount of linen available for the 1st release, therefore, these will be filled on a first come first serve basis. We will be getting a 2nd shipment in shortly after the first, so rest assured we will get it in for you.  For complete program details/pricing, check your inbox for your weekly E-newsletter later today!
